Big Blue + The METS, I love you

I know there are momentous events happening in the world.

I know a very difficult and unsatisfactory primary season is unfolding, with dire consequences for the future of this country and the World, But,But,But…..

Today I woke up with a smile, and a world class diversion. My Metsies, the New York Mets, my #1 sports passion and biggest frustration( my appologies to the Knicks , Nets, and even the surprising Super Bowl bound Giants)

Today I woke up with a smile!!!  We got the best pitcher in the world!!! Johan Santana is a Met! Yay! My Summer is made.

Baseball is in my blood. It has been since I was a little boy, maybe 5 years old,I  remember running the streets of suburban Long Island yelling and screaming with joy,  Johnny Padres had just shut out the hated Yankees, ( I was a Brooklyn boy, of course) 2-0 in the 7th game of the World Series, to bring Brooklyn its first World title.

As a sports thrill, Johane Santana as a  Met, makes my day….

Reality can wait for a little while, this young boy still has baseball stars in his eyes.
